LCMS Weekly Update Graphic Good evening, LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families,

Monday, February 27th will be a B day.

We had an exciting week last week! Captain Howard Baugh visited LCMS and talked with seventh grade students about the Tuskegee Airmen, the first Black pilots in the U.S. Students were enthralled by his stories, and they asked excellent questions! NBC12 reported a story about Captain Baugh's visit to LCMS! Click this link to check it out. Sixth grade students enjoyed a Barter Theatre show, My Imaginary Pirate! As you know, the Louisa Rotary Club is a tremendous supporter of TeamLCPS, and they have generously funded Barter Theatre performances over the years. We are appreciative of their support!

We will be working together to clean up roads within Louisa County. Please complete the permission form for your child to participate, and return the form to the LCMS Main Office no later than Tuesday, February 28th. This is an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in a service project that benefits our community, and I hope that you will consider having your child participate!

Bobcats – Do you love to perform? Maybe you belt out ballads, play an instrument, or dance? Perhaps you are a black belt in karate, love to make others laugh as a comedian, or are an amazing magician. We are looking for you! We are searching for entertainers who want to participate in the LCMS Talent Show! Tryouts will be held on Wednesday, March 22nd in the LCMS forum. If you are interested in participating, pick up a permission slip from room 622 or the cafeteria and return it by Friday, March 17th. We look forward to seeing all the talented students here at LCMS!

At LCMS, we are a proud Heart-Partner school with the American Heart Association! Every year, we focus on the importance of being KIND to our HEARTS, and others. Please help your student join our school team by downloading the American Heart Challenge app, or go to When signing up, please use a parent or guardian’s email (not your student’s school-provided email address). Students who complete all of the 8 steps on their Finn’s Mission HEART gamecard, will be recognized at school as one of our Heart Heroes & will receive a special limited edition BEANIE cap! Students who raise at least $50 in life-saving donations for the mission of American Heart Association, will receive a special t-shirt, celebrating the organization helping hearts, since 1924!
